Finally, a Barbie based on a mass murderer.

A Tomb Raider Barbie doll has been unveiled by US toy maker Mattel ahead of the release of a new film starring Alicia Vikander, which opens in March.

The Lara Croft Barbie won't come with any of the firearms the character uses to kill her numerous enemies, nor her all-important bow and arrow, but she does come with her deadly ice axe.

She also comes with a map, journal, doll stand and certificate of authenticity, reports IGN, which exclusively debuted images of the Barbie.

Tomb Raider is an iconic game franchise launched in 1996 and rebooted in 2013, with more than 58 million games sold worldwide.

It was previously adapted for the big screen with Angelina Jolie as Croft in two films, released in 2001 and 2003.

The latest iteration of Tomb Raider is set for release in New Zealand cinemas on March 15.

The Barbie is set to go on sale this week, but unboxing videos of it are already viewable on YouTube.
